Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

431. A Parting Hymn We Sing

1 A parting hymn we sing
around your table, Lord;
again our grateful tribute bring,
our solemn vows record.

2 Here have we seen your face,
and felt your presence here;
so may the savor of your grace
in word and life appear.

3 We're purchased by your blood,
by sin no longer led,
the path our dear Redeemer trod
may we rejoicing tread.

4 In self-forgetting love
be our communion shown,
until we join the church above,
and know as we are known.
